Certified Scuba Instructor PADI # 332799 NAUI # 62176


As the founder of Africans sea divers,my scuba diving journey began in 2009 as a young man that couldn’t even swim, not mentioning without ever being exposed to the ocean in my life. I was given the opportunity to start with a basic course to learn how to breathe underwater and explore the depth of the ocean. That small start was life changing and have not been able to keep my toes out of the ocean since

What a great experience to finally get to dive with my kids. The “Discover Scuba Course” is the best way to introduce everyone to the wonders of Scuba! Lorato was patient and thorough with each individual family member and ensured that everyone was comfortable with the experience. We had a blast and I have keen new SCUBA enthusiast in my home. Cannot wait to do the full course.
